Since 1997 I have bred over 45 litters of beaucerons under “des Monts du Lac” affix. My dogs have won the highest awards for Beaucerons both in the United states of America and Europe. One of these Beaucerons has made history in the USA by being the first Beauceron to ever win an AKC all-breed Best in Show. The same dog also placed 3rd best herding dog at the Westminster Kennel Club Show in New York City in 2012. Today still no other Beauceron has placed in the group at that show. Throughout the years, I have also bred 2 National Specialty winner, 3 World Champions, 3 French Champions , 3 Vice French Champions and many other International and American Champions.
As a young person, I was a military officer and canine handler in the French army. So over the years, in addition to breeding beautiful sound dogs (mind and body) I have also developed a passion for search & rescue and the working ability of the breed. I am currently a FCI licensed temperament judge for herding dogs. Over 15 years I worked as a dog instructor in several dog clubs. I am currently captain of the French team for the World Search and Rescue Championship. I was even a board officer on the French National breed club called “Club des Amis du Beauceron”, specifically the General secretary for 4 years and participated on the working dog committee for 8 years.
